WOODSTOCK, Ont. – A former Ontario nurse accused of killing eight seniors in two long-term care homes is facing six new charges.
Ontario Provincial Police say the new charges against Elizabeth Wettlaufer include four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in relation to people in her care.
The latest charges are related to incidents that allegedly occurred between June 2007 and August 2016.
The fresh details come as Wettlaufer is set to appear in a Woodstock, Ont., court this morning.
Wettlaufer was charged in October with eight counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of residents at nursing homes in Woodstock and London, Ont.
Police alleged the 49-year-old used drugs to kill the seniors while she worked at the facilities between 2007 and 2014.
